Prince Harry’s presence at King Charles’s Coronation next month will be “excruciating” after his “humiliating” decision to attend the event, a royal commentator has claimed. After months of speculation, Harry finally revealed he would be going to the Coronation on May 6 but without his wife Meghan Markle. Daniela Elser described Harry’s decision as an “epic climb down” and said he will likely be “blanked” by others royals including his closest relatives.
Elser said: “This could end up being as exquisitely excruciating as watching someone being dumped on live television.”
She suggested “Team Sussex” would fail to “spin” his attendance into a victory and that “this Coronation move qualifies as a humiliation for the Duke of Sussex”.
She wrote for news.com.au: “Harry attending constitutes a climb-down on par with the one Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay made after summiting Everest – news which, incidentally, reached London on the very same day in 1953 as the late Queen’s Coronation.”
Buckingham Palace has confirmed Harry’s attendance at the Coronation but hasn’t commented on anything else regarding his decision.
